Spine surgery involving direct removal of herinated disk fragments (microdiscetomy) for pain from a pinched nerve has been a widely accepted treatment for decades and has yielded excellent results in appropriately selected patients.
This procedure is done by orthopaedic spine surgeons and neurosurgeons.
